Firstly i installed Vista a while back and never really got to grips with it and it seemed to run alot slower than XP,
so i thought id go back to XP, so i backed up what i wanted to keep on my ipod, inserted the xp recovery disk, rebooted tapped F5 or whichever 1 it is i forget to select to boot from disk, it booted from disk and had 3 options, delete old windows file press L, to make a new folder and save it to that one press etc etc ..........blah blah.....
so i pressed L and it set off (i should probably tell you i wanted to format my HDD not just delete the windows folder which is what i thought i was doing....was i? anyway) i left it and when i came back it said a certain file couldn't be found at around 60% and it gave me options try again, restart or just carry on (warning this could effect windows running etc etc)
I stupidly thought its ok ill just get the file of the net once i get xp back, this happened about 5 times so 5 times stupidly i pressed carry on... it then came to the installing windows screen this should take about 39 minutes but straight away an error message comes up and just says press ok i press ok it just reboots and comes back to installing windows and the error message, i press ok (obvious where this is going) it reboots and again the error message pops up, so im stuck in this circle going nowhere. i know its all because im stupid, im just hoping some1 can help me sort it....
Fortunatly i've got a laptop in my household to write to you guys for help,
